Musical (2015)

Musique: Daniel Messé
Paroles: Daniel Messé • Nathan Tysen
Livret: Craig Lucas
Production à la création:

Based on the beloved five-time Oscar-nominated film, Amélie (Tony nominee Phillipa Soo) is an extraordinary young woman who lives quietly in the world, but loudly in her mind. She covertly improvises small, but surprising acts of kindness that bring joy to those around her. But when a chance at love comes her way, Amélie realizes that to find happiness she'll have to risk everything and say what's in her heart. Come be inspired by this imaginative dreamer who finds her voice, discovers the power of connection and sees possibility around every corner. In these uncertain times, Amélie is someone to believe in.

Presse : "The mild-mannered musical adaptation of this movie, which opened on Monday night at the Walter Kerr Theater, is unlikely to stir similar is pleasant to look at, easy to listen to and oddly recessive. It neither offends nor enthralls." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"“Times are hard for dreamers,” the heroine observes. The same goes for audiences dreaming that this show would transcend, or even match, the movie." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"Book writer Craig Lucas and songwriters Daniel Messé and Nathan Tysen are at pains to articulate a singable emotional center of the source while staying true to its careening, cinematic narrative. The two duties ultimately cancel each other out." David Cote for Time Out New York

"From the music to the staging to the cartoonish set design, it reeks of well-intentioned children's theatre." Roma Torre for NY1

"This grating stage musical takes the slenderest of romances and drowns it in cartoonish quirks in place of genuine warmth or feeling. And while Phillipa Soo is a creditable stand-in for the movie's uber-gamine Audrey Tautou, as a musical comedy heroine, Amelie Poulain is a dud." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"But the star is so bland here, she's not even Phillipa Soo. More than helpful, it's almost mandatory to have seen the movie if you hope to follow the erratic events of Craig Lucas's twee book." Marilyn Stasio for Variety
